Cincinnati, Ohio will vote in November on bringing back the ranked choice voting form of proportional representation for city council elections. The city currently uses a winner-take-all system that too often shuts out new voices from council, leading to a citizen's initiative this summer that turned in more than 15,000 signatures. Better Ballot Cincinnati has impressive support, including some of the city's most respected political leaders, Common Cause, ACORN and other civic groups from across the spectrum. On September 20th, the measure picked up the editorial support of the Cincinnati Business Courier.
FairVote's founding meeting was in Cincinnati in 1992 and it has deep roots and connections in the city. We are working closely with local backers to make sure they have all the information they need for this historic campaign.
